Desserts are great

Desserts are yummy, but there are times when I could eat dessert all day and nothing healthy. Sometimes finding the right choice is harder than i would have expected. So I decided to put a couple of yummy desserts up for you to enjoy and possible love.

Makes 8 servings

What you need:
8 oz Cool Whip Free
8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
9 inch reduced fat Graham Cracker Crust
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
12-14 strawberries, hulled and halved lengthwise

In a large bowl, whip cream cheese, vanilla extract and sugar for a few minutes until fluffy. Add Cool Whip and whip until smooth. Spoon mixture into pie crust and chill for a few hours, until firm. Arrange strawberries on top and serve

Prepare Jello according to directions, add strawberries and place in refrigerator until it starts to set. Mix cream cheese, sugar and ½ cup Cool Whip. Start to layer the salad. On top of the crust, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly. Once the Jello starts to set, place it over the cream cheese mixture. Return to the refrigerator and allow Jello to set completely. Top with remaining Cool Whip and garnish as desired -- fruit, sprinkles, etc.
